Some time ago, i wanted to play paintball but didnt have much cash so i bought some Vapor from wallyworld. I will tell you that it is the worst paintball ever made. The paintballs are all compressed into a block in the 200 rd containers and have so many dimples its not even funny. This is HORRIBLE Paint. I dont care how little money you got, this is not worth a dime. They will not break, "except in ur gun", they smell HORRIBLE, and zip all over the place due to horrible dimpling....
As i said this was a while ago when i was a nub, a word of warning, just.. stay away from this stuff.

It must have been the batch because i have a bag that is a month old and last weekend it shot really good in my gun. no sweating balls, no visible dimples i bought the 2000 case though so the 200rd containers might suck

i agree zap is bad. the paint i reccomend from walmart is scorch and superswirl. visual impact is good too but that is just scorch with a diffrent name. there made by the same people with absolutly no change except the name. dont ask me why. i talked to the owner of game face (ppl who make scorch) and he said before they came out they would have orange fill yet they have pink so i dunno

Why would you buy paint from Wal-Mart, they don't know how to properly store or handle paint, and most of their stock just sits on the shelves for up to a year...

Iv used Zap Vapor before and it was good paint, youve got some bad batches that were miss handled or something.

Iv also bought alot of Zap Vapor "Practice Series" and I find its better than what I got when I bought whitebox. The balls were rounder, and the shell more resilient. less brittle. On the downside they were quite sweated and warped at first, but after cleaning them, and waiting, the next day they were good.

paintballs that has been warped from being squished together will usually regain their shape if you expose them to the air for 5 minutes, then seal em in a zip lock bag and leave them sit overnight.

Vapor is only one step above whitebox. I've shot it before, and while it didn't have any feed problems, it was inaccurate and failed to break a lot.

All in all, you get what you pay for.

Ya, Id rather use cheap paint. I have a hard time convinceing myself that when you pay $60+ for a box of paint, that your (getting what you paid for)

I wish a couple more Gel capsul factories would go up and drop the price of paintballs.

only zap i've ever used that i liked was Zap Sport (blue ball, super thick blue fill) I bought it at my wally world here and then they discontinued it =\ go figure.

It was accurate, and thick fill made visible hard to wipe breaks.

Personally, I just open the cases in Wal-Mart to make sure it's not crap. If they complain because I found a defective product, that's their problem. I won't buy it unless I know it's good.
